70th birthday with Beau Chateau

I was asked to create a 70th birthday card for my friend's mother. Her mother is very English and quite proper. So I needed to create something to suit.
Quite by accident I found exactly what I was looking for in my Beau Chateau paper. I wanted to use the DSP and was wondering what to put with it. I looked at the pretty frame on one of the pages and then my mind went into overdrive.
What if I cut out the frame and stamped some wording in it? No, not quite what I wanted.
What about cutting out a framelit die with the Big Shot and put that on the cut out frame and then stamp? No, still not quite what I wanted.
Well finally I decided to use my Designer Frames Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment and then ran the Oval frame through the Big Shot. I cut out the inner part of the oval frame and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. Then I cut out a Framelit and put it back through the big shot using the Designer Frames. (Gee I love my Big Shot!) Stuck the sponged oval on top and decided that was it. Finally happy with the look.
The three little flowers were made using the old 3 blossom punch and then rolled up and squished to create the faux suede look. Then I popped on the tiny half pearls.
Finally I put it all together, stuck Beau Chateau DSP onto Crumb Cake card, attached Crumb Cake seam binding around this and tied with a bow at the top. Added my frames and then the whole lot was stuck on to Very Vanilla card.
I didn't want to put the 70 on the front, but felt it needed  to go somewhere. So I sponged a piece of Very Vanilla, stamped the Happy and TH and added the 70 which I had cut out from the Big Shot. ( Oh I love my Big Shot)
What do you think? Will her mum like it? I hope she does.
